Robert Indiana's Figure 5 offers a cynical reflection on the American Dream, with the works "eat," "die," "err" delivering a psychological punch. The clean, hard edges and uniform coloring characteristic of Indiana's works result from his use of stencil, the effect of which is a tightly ordered and controlled image that is emblematic of the rigid geometry of the American city and its sleek consumer products.
